“Miracles occur naturally as expressions of love. The real miracle is the love that inspires them. In this sense everything that comes from love is a miracle.”
Some of you may be familiar with the song, quite simply titled, as ‘Love’ by John Lennon. The message discusses an individuals understanding of love, and consequently, reflects the authors desire for love.
Have you ever stopped and wondered why you loved that person despite whatever transgressions this person committed against you? Have you ever considered what it is in your life that you truly love?
Reflecting on these things and the recent events of my life; I have a few observations of my own. Love is as simple and complex as expression. To feel love without expression is to rob yourself of giving love, and others to receive that love. To falsify that love with a “pseudo-love” in an attempt to conform someone into your thinking is wrong. If there’s anything that human nature will teach us is that we will not be fooled by a fake product, because the results of that product are also fallacy.
The answer is the true expression of love. That is to act and speak in a way of loving others. That means searching out their feelings by taking an interest in them, and addressing their needs.
If you do not feel love towards another: take the time to understand their needs regardless. Or if that goal cannot be attained; remove yourself from the situation. There is no need to complicate and irritate a situation that is non-existent.
My friends, never give up on someone you cannot go a day without thinking about. It is one of the oldest literary clichés known to man, but its wisdom holds true. But, that doesn’t mean hold on to something that is not there. It takes a pairing of our intellect along with our heart to find out the difference between mutual love and unrequited love. Love becomes problematic when we only employ one of these.
It is a miracle that love works the way it does, and when we experience it fully (i.e: the love of a child) it drives us to reach for a higher existence. Encouragement of another stems from freely given love, and that positive energy feeds our very souls. Have you ever felt a surge of creative inspiration by viewing something beautiful? It is that very feeling of being impassioned, emblazoned, and empowered.
Those that offer you love that inspires and sustains you is love you should nurture in good times and bad. Make yourself available to recieve love and give love. That, my Jesters and Halequinns, is the nature of a miracle we partake in every day, and by the Grace of God, we are lucky enough to recieve.
